As the house bike brand of mail order giant Chain Reaction, one might be excused for not looking further at Vitus Bikes. But leveraging their decades of experience in the industry and substantial purchasing power, Vitus has managed to put together a pretty solid modern cyclocross race bike in the new Vitus Energie CRX.
Vitus Energie CRX affordable carbon cyclocross race bike
The new carbon Energie CRX cyclocross bike was created to offer an affordable race-ready cross bike that will get shipped straight out to consumers. At its core it is a lightweight, stiff hi-mod T700 UD carbon frameset with a low-cost, high-value build.
Vitus Energie CRX – Tech Details
With plenty of room for classic CX race tires and lots of mud clearance, Vitus specs a slightly larger volume set of 35mm WTB Cross Boss tires on the 23mm internal WTB Frequency Team tubeless rims.
The Energie CRX features a light carbon frame with fully internal cables, 12 mm thru-axles, and a mix of post mount rear & flat mount front brakes.
Vitus Energie CRX – Pricing & Availability
The direct-to-consumer carbon race bike is available in a single complete bike build featuring a SRAM Force 1 hydraulic groupset.
